Arteta reflects on Manchester City defeat 0

Posted on October 18, 2020 by Harry Kettle

Arsenal were unable to complete their mission objective last night as they fell to a 1-0 defeat against Manchester City at the Emirates. In many ways City were there for the taking but for whatever reason, the Gunners just couldn’t get going until late in the game and paid the price for that.

After the full time whistle blew Arteta, who was criticised for not putting Thomas Partey on earlier than he did, spoke to the media as Arsenal prepare to try and regroup before a difficult run of three Europa League games and three PL games against Manchester United, Leicester and Aston Villa.

The international break is officially over and in its place, we have the return of the Premier League and domestic football across the world. Arsenal have enjoyed a decent enough start to the season but they’ll face yet another big challenge later today when they make the trip up to Manchester to take on Manchester City at the Etihad.

It’s bound to be one of the hardest games of the campaign regardless of how City have played lately, and Mikel Arteta will be incredibly eager to get one over on his former mentor Pep Guardiola.

Domestic football is back in our lives this weekend and that includes the Premier League. Arsenal will face an incredibly tough test in the form of Manchester City, and yet while they may be the underdogs, many believe they do actually stand a chance.

Gunners manager Mikel Arteta has taken the time to speak with the media ahead of the clash, and while a large focus was on the game, the dreaded Project Big Picture also came to the forefront of the conversation – as you’d expect.

Arsenal were extremely keen on signing Houssem Aouar from Olympique Lyon before the international transfer window slammed shut early this month, by all accounts, including a few hints from the player himself. In the end nothing happened on that front, and with all we’ve seen and read, it seems very likely that Arsenal simply couldn’t afford to present Lyon with an acceptable offer after being obliged to trigger the release clause of Thomas Partey. They had to choose, and Partey was probably seen as the greater of the two needs at this particular moment.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta hopes he will be able to count on Kieran Tierney for the Manchester City showdown this weekend. The boss is set to lead the team against his former employers on Saturday in a game which will be a part of the fifth round of the 2020/21 Premier League campaign.

While on international duty with Scotland, Southampton midfielder Stuart Armstrong tested positive for Covid-19. Tierney, along with Celtic midfielder Cyrus Christie and two members of Scotland’s backroom staff, have been identified as the ones to have had close contact with Armstrong the most, and have therefore been requested to undergo a 14-day self-isolation by the┬áLothian Health Protection Team.

Posted on October 15, 2020 by Harry Kettle

It’s been a positive start to the new season for Arsenal and while they’ve still got a lot of work to do before being dubbed a successful top four contender again, the early signs are good. As reported by Arsenal.com, there is one new signing from the summer transfer window above all others who helped to make September a success – and that man is Gabriel Magalhaes.

The one thing that Arsenal needed heading into the new campaign was some stability at the back and Gabriel seems to have introduced that into this side. Sure, he needs to do it for longer than just a few games in order to be taken seriously at this level, but he’s definitely managed to get off to a positive start.

Arsenal have enjoyed a solid start to the season but they’re still waiting for a few players to return to full fitness – and that includes Gabriel Martinelli. The young forward was widely considered to be one of the Gunners’ most exciting stars prior to his injury, and now, he’s gearing up to try and revive that reputation as he pushes for a comeback before the end of the year.

He recently spoke with Arsenal.com and spoke about how confident he’s feeling and how excited he is to have a few more Brazilians in the squad after the summer transfer window.

Could Arsenal return for Aouar? 0

Posted on October 13, 2020 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal were obviously very interested in signing Houssem Aouar from Olympique Lyon this summer, and it’s easy to see the reasons for it. The 22-year-old attacking midfielder boasts considerable work-rate and tremendous skill, and would likely provide the team with additional creative sparks, helping the already formidable forward line shine even more.

Two bids for his services have been submitted and rejected by the Ligue 1 side during the summer transfer window, and Aouar stayed in Lyon. As he revealed to French outlet Telefoot (via the Mirror), he doesn’t mind staying there for another season; he is happy in the city and the club he calls his own. He also likes working with sporting director Juninho Pernambucano, with whom he spoke several times about a proposed departure which so far hasn’t come to pass.
